Let's say a big-name artist went to his or her producer and said, "I don't like the sound of digital recordings. They sound cold and unnatural. My voice sounds mechanical and steely on my recent CDs, which were done in PCM. As a result, I don't want to do any more digital recordings. I want to do analog." Now, let's say right away that DSD is not an option for various reasons (lack of equipment, cost, etc.). Let's also say that the producer could not convince the artist to record in 24/96 or 24/192 PCM (perhaps the artist recorded in 24/96 PCM before and didn't like the results). The artist's reaction to the suggestion of higher-resolution PCM was, "No. No PCM recordings." What would the producer tell him? Is recording in analog at all a reasonable proposition today?
